xffm settings and mcs

Hi Edscott,

I've changed the mcs-plugin for xffm to use a nice editable treeview
instead of the ugly text entries for env .variable (see screenshot)

The env. variable stuff don't work anyway. xffm complains "Invalid
Argument:TERM=<whatever I type>"

Btw, I think this particular mcs-plugin is all broken! Your plugin
doesn't seem to save or load its values, nowhere... mcs API provides
transparent hooks to save and load channel setting to XML files, but you
need to call the routines for this to work.

I still think the use of env variable is not needed at all, since it's
the job of mcs: mcs is independent of the host, values are shared
between all apps that run on the display, whatever host there are
running on.

I cannot figure what the use of environment variable provides that mcs
